Welcome to my blog!
I, like many others, was inspired at TMC18 to start a blog. Thanks to my best friend's husband, that became a reality! My goals are to share with others what I'm doing in my classroom, but also collaborate on activities and projects.
So why "Cupcakes and Pi"? I LOVE cupcakes. I make it a point to get a cupcake in every city I visit. I'm a picky eater, so the idea that I can pick out whatever flavor I want is amazing! In addition, I'm a nerd about all things pi. I find pi absolutely fascinating! I started school-wide Pi Day activities at my school back in March 2008, my second year teaching. We began a pi reciting contest and a pi poster competition. Over the course of the years, students strive to beat the school record. The school record of 418 digits set in 2015 was shattered this year when Ryan S recited 504 digits of pi! Check out these results!
Thank you to Elissa Miller and my sister, Suzanne, for their help coming up with a fun name for my blog! Let the fun begin!
